SACATE members meet 5-6 times annually to discuss technological issues at Tri-County Association for the Blind, 1800 North Second Street, harrisburg, PA. These meetings normally take place the last Tuesday of a given month, however, Specific meeting dates and times are often established by the group via our listserve.
Typically we begin the meeting between 5:30-6:00pm with food. Presently we order food from various local restaurants and pay for our own choices with small contributions for our drivers and volunteers.
Then, we usually discuss group business, plan for future meetings, and have a demonstration/discussion about new software or technology of special interest for the blind and visually impaired. We usually finish around 8:30 p.m.
Topics for most meetings will be announced at this website and on our list-serve.
If you wish to join us for dinner or need help with transportation, it is important you contact Marie Sersch or Londa peterson the week before the meeting by calling The Association at 238-2531.
